Bio

Megan is a Fellow at the Daniel F. Cracchiolo Law Library at The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law, pursuing her Master's degree at the University of Arizona School of Information Resources and Library Science. Megan graduated from the law college in 1993. While in law school, Megan worked as an Articles Editor for the Arizona Journal of International and Comparative Law. After graduation, Megan worked as a law clerk to federal Magistrate Judge Nancy Fiora for two years. After briefly practicing criminal defense in a small firm, Megan returned to federal court as a Pro Se Staff Attorney. During her time as a law clerk and staff attorney, Megan was an Adjunct Professor of Legal Analysis and Writing at the law college. In 2005, Megan left lawyering to be a music and musical theatre teacher for elementary and middle school students. She directed about 10 musical theatre productions and many concerts. After home-schooling her children for a few years, she decided to return to the law school, this time as a law library fellow. Outside of work and school, her hobbies include taking care of animals (chickens, horses, dogs, cats, a rabbit and a gold fish), long-distance running, singing, and dancing.
